At Davis Design Group, we provide our clients with innovative tools to design public policy, delivery systems and change strategies.
Using cutting edge technology that represents the best of its kind, we determine and interpret the impact of public policy on the attitudes and actions of people. We offer predictions and forecasts with unprecedented accuracy to improve results in education, health, safety, and economic growth.
Using the groundbreaking Reference World Information and Simulation Environment (RWISE) technology, we view the world from the vantage point of the receiver. RWISE describes quantitatively how people are feeling and how they will respond to change.
The result? RWISE allows us to visualize the big picture, and gauge how people will be affected…before change ever occurs.
More information about RWISE
RWISE is an agent-base modeling or gaming technology created by Simulex Inc., located in Purdue Research Park. RWISE is used by the U.S. Government and its allies to guide actions to relieve political stress around the world. The technology is an invaluable strategic tool for U.S. defense and diplomacy.
In pursuit of Lumina Foundation’s Big Goal (increasing the percentage of Americans with high-quality degrees and credentials to 60% by 2025) Davis Design Group earned a grant to build SEE for Indiana using RWISE technology.
Partners in the project include the Indiana Business Research Center, Indiana Commission for Higher Education, the State Student Assistances Commission of Indiana, Indiana Department of Workforce Development, and Indiana Department of Education.
Assembling data about people, organizations, institutions, economies, and infrastructure onto one common platform
Creating simulated people, with behavioral and demographic traits, and their sense of well being where they live
Mining census and health data, opinion barometers and media to develop and maintain an accurate picture of our communities
Quantifying the impact over time of policy changes and investments in people and infrastructure
Providing simulations as training tools for change leaders and service providers
